A decent new American Express promotion has appeared in the online accounts of many people. I have it showing under my Platinum card although it is not showing for my SPG or BA Amex. My wife does have it showing for her BA Amex.
The deal offers £10 statement credit when you spend £30 at WH Smith. It is valid for the first 30,000 people to register.
If you think that WH Smith doesn’t have much to offer, think again. The larger (non-railway and non-airport) stores tend to sell a decent range of gift cards for a start. This effectively means that you can transfer your £10 saving to a different retailer altogether.
Stocking up on stamps is another possibility. You will also find a range of toys in some stores as well as the usual books, magazines etc.
If you can find a suitably large store – for Londoners, there is a good one just a few steps from Chancery Lane tube station for example – you could save yourself a few pounds across various Amex cards relatively easily.
The deadline for spending the £30 is 15th October.
Some other, less interesting, deals have are also showing on my accounts, some of which I have mentioned before:
Armani Exchange, £10 back on £50
TopShop, £15 back on £50
Red Carnation Hotels, £25 back on £250
Moss Bros, £50 back on £200
Sunglass Hut, £10 back on £100
Gap, £15 back on £50
Skype, £5 back on £10 (ends 30/9)
Hilton, £50 back on £250 spend in UK (ends 30/9)
Debenhams, £10 back on £50
Achica, £25 back on £85
House of Fraser, £10 back on £50
Ryanair, £10 back with no minimum spend
